    Actually he didn't but since it pushes your partisan agenda feel free to believe what is not based on fact.

    Actually it doesn't. There was a point being made that you missed.

    Would those that accidentally say what they really mean instead of what they meant to say fit in that category, too?

    True Enough, then.

    Maybe. I'm not sure how you mean this.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

I am NOT a Lindsay Graham fan and have not been for a long time now, but I get angrier and angrier at these remarks taken out of context and then played over and over and over for days, weeks, months to achieve as much mileage aka personal destruction out of them as possible. I don't care whether it is Lindsay Graham or Billy Graham, Harry Reid or Mother Teresa, Nancy Pelosi or Ghandi. Everybody deserves to be represented honestly and fairly. They all say enough legitimate stuff that can be criticized honestly and fairly without having to take what was intended as an innocent sound bite and blowing it all out of proportion.
    The people have been softened up enough with decades long charges of racism, sexism, etc, that they are now predisposed to believe anything negative a Republican might say. Any joke, no matter how mild, will be latched on to by their political opponents as an expose of how Republicans really are, and used as an example of their true nature and character. And despite this adolescent behavior people still buy into it, no matter how clean the record of the person being accused.
